Magnum’s Story:
On May 7, 2019 Magnum, a heavy-duty wrecker operator for Rob’s Automotive was hit by a stake body truck while on the job. Magnum a father of two who is active in his community as a Manager and Assistant coach of two Morrisville Little League teams suffered serious spinal cord injuries as a result of the accident that initially left him paralyzed from the chest down. After invasive surgery, a two week stay in the ICU, he was diagnosed with a C4 Incomplete Asia B injury. Patients with C4 spinal cord injuries typically need 24 hour-a-day support to breathe due to loss of diaphragm function, have limited range of motion and paralysis in arms, hands, torso, and legs. The name Magnum means great, grand or big. When you watch him, when you see how far he has come, you realize that his determination, strength and perseverance through all of this has him living up to his name. Magnum isn’t allowing the typical to overcome him, and has been beating the odds everyday since the accident. He is not allowing this accident and injuries to define him. He is instead redefining himself with a need to help others and spread the word of the Move Over Law and the importance of keeping first responders safe on the road.
